'Piano Man' Plays for Good Cause


-- A record-breaking piano player from Leland is now stroking the keys for a different cause.

Tim Buie and his electric piano will travel for three days throughout Brunswick and New Hanover counties to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer's. Buie's mother has the disease.

Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo is proclaiming May 4-6 "Americans Against Alzheimer's" week.

Buie hopes to raise thousands of dollars with his piano playing. You can donate at any of his performances. For a list of venues click here. You can also donate over the phone at (910) 228-8972 or (910) 616-3912.  All proceeds will go to the Eastern North Carolina Alzheimer's Association.
